Karen Owen: After “Sex Thesis”, What Comes Next?

So…what comes next for Karen Owen.

This is probably the question that I’ve been asked most over the past couple of days (except if I know where she is…of course I have no idea).

Speculation is that she will either end up on the talk show circuit, one or more of the national morning news broadcasts or even a book deal.

I’ve heard the full spectrum of responses from “what an absolute whore” to “hey…guys have always done this…why can’t she”.

So…do you have an opinion? Do you expect to see her on TV? Will you read her book? Should she be embarrassed or is should she be proud of her “accomplishment”?

From the Washington Post:

Thanks to the ever-salacious public that have since made her list go viral, Owen may assuage that regret with plenty of cash. Jezebel reports that William Morris agent Ari Golds tried to contact her and HarperCollins is also champing at the bit.

The HarperCollins pitch said, “Even though I’m sure she’s horrified that her, uh, presentation, which was intended for a small group of friends, has gone viral, she’s a very good, funny writer, and I’m wondering if she has any interest in writing a book.”

Owen could join that vaunted legion of women who have cashed out on their sex scandals. After Jessica Cutler was outed from the anonymous sex blog “The Washingtonienne,” she secured a six-figure deal. Eliot Spitzer’s escort Ashley Dupre reportedly managed a $2 million deal, though she never did write the book.

From ABC News:

The 42-page PowerPoint presentation titled, “An Education Beyond the Classroom: Excelling in the Realm of Horizontal Academics,” ranked 13 men Owen was sexually involved with during college, according to their physical attractiveness, athletic ability and talent — in the bedroom.

The thesis was reportedly e-mailed by Owen to only a few of her close friends. But after one of those friends forwarded the document, and then that recipient did the same, the document soon went viral, first appearing on the blog Deadspin.com.

    On the now-rapid spread of this Story on TV, I’ve heard that she’s everything from “Heartbroken” to “Ashamed”, as well as the mention of a Book AND a Made-for-TV Movie. Yeah, I’ve heard the talk too, that Guys have been doing this kind of thing for years, and that it is especially Common among College Males— although why THEIR Escapades never surface like this is a question. Anyway, from the discussions on TV, the opinion seems to be that this thing is not as “Bad” or as big of a Deal as the Media is making it and the Public is taking it. In mine, I’m tired of hearing about it. It’s just another Story, in small-town-America, that makes the Headlines and gets way too much Attention and undeserved Coverage. Unlike truly interesting stories such as “Balloon Boy” and the recent “Acid Hoax”, to me, this one is not even worth Gossiping about. Karen Owen has to live and deal with this…. I don’t— nor do I care to. I can’t wait for it to hit the Vault.

    Right on Honeeeeeeedaaaaaaaaawg.

    How about Kyron Horman? Haleigh Cummings etc. etc.

    The attention this girl is getting is really is really another cog in the “stupid wheel”.Who cares…….

    They have reached the Chilean miners who have been buried for over two months………The process to get them above ground is very tricky..they will need to be treated for several conditions once they are free. What a nightmare. It is still a dangerous procedure……..

    Imagine being one of those fellows or their family. My gaaaaawd.

    I don’t give a shit about stupid reports on someone’s sexual stunts.

    America needs all the help it can get to right itself……….we have run amok.

    NO I AM NOT a teabagger. I’m not sure just who they are anyway. LOL!!!
